Who was the neighbor
Posted by Troy Brown on Monday, April 21 2:31 pm
I wanted to add a little twist to this story. Jesus asks, "Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?" Consider this closely. Jesus does not give us the correct answer. He just asks the question. I believe the correct answer is all three. The Samaritan might have been the "nicest" neighbor, but God didn't tell us to love only the nicest neighbors, he said to love ALL neighbors. So in my opinion all three were his neighbor to the man who was fallen. This story takes on a whole new light when you think of it in this way.
